>>> no women will be more impacted by tuesday's relates than hour young women . what we sow with our votes, in three days they will reap. joining the panel now to help represent generation next is julie zilinger, 19-year-old barnard university sophomore and author of "a little f'd up," feministed up. is there a moment that we have seen this war on women who priding an opportunity for young women to see relevance of and importance of feminism in their lives? i think it has. it might be the one upside of this entire campaign. i think young women are coming to these conclusions. previously we will be under the misconception that our rights had been won for us and this fight was over. i think seeing some of these outrageous comments that politicians are making about our bodies and rights in general are really allowing us to wake up.
>> we had a student who was sort of busy during one of the big fights around birth control and said, i woke up and all of a sudden contraception was gone. a little bit of an over statement but stunning to see that happening. is that the kind of thing that young women on college campuses are talking about head into on tuesday?
>> it's definitely a concern. like i said, it's very shock for a lot of us who thought these rights were going to be there forever. i think we are incredibly passionate about doing everything we can to keep those rights.
>> what about run for office? it was the last thing we were talking about is this need for a pipeli pipeline. do people -- i look at a young woman like you and say, okay, i got to tell you run for office at some point. think about that as your career. do young women look at our current politics and say, i am never jump nag that shark's nest?
>> i think there are some wary by a lot of the comments but i think especially looking at all of the comments these men have been making and how they are trying to describe what it's like to be a woman and trying to make these decisions for us is inspiring in a lot of ways. i think we want to get in there in order to make things right.
>> if there is one sort of economic issue that you hear young women talking about, what is that economic issue?
>> i think definitely student debt in terms of young women my age. it's something definitely on our mind and especially when you hear things like the fact that romney would cut pell grant funding, it's incredibly concerning to young women .
>> absolutely. julie, i so appreciate you joining the panel to remind all of us that we're in this fight but we're often in the fight for you and with you, and you have a right to have your voices heard, as well. so thank you for joining us tonight.
>>> coming up, just who runs
